Cr Rhoades and Today weatherman Steve Jacobs swapped jobs yesterday, after the mayor's entry won the 'Be Steve For A Day' competition. While the mayor be- came the morning pro- gram's weather announcer,
Steve became the city's mayor and Sawtell's fire captain for the morning. Cr Rhoades said while the 3am start was 'a bit rough', seeing life on the other side of the camera was a real eye-opener. "When I walked in to the studio, Jessica Rowe was sitting there and after about 10 minutes of chatting with them all, I felt like I had known them for 10 years. They really made me feel like
part of the team," Cr Rhoades said. As for Steve Jacob's response to being mayor, Cr Rhoades said he seemed only too pleased to swap roles for the day. "He was absolutely tickled pink. I think he re- ally enjoyed himself," Cr Rhoades said. While it was all in the name of fun, Cr Rhoades said the program's expo- sure was definitely a 'win win' for the Coffs Coast.
